Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon with Creme Fraiche

Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon with Creme Fraiche

 

Last year, I received a very special birthday gift from my family, ‘Four Little Red Hens’.  Easy to care for and very endearing, we give them food and shelter, they give us amazing fresh eggs every day!

 

 

This ambrosial recipe for Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon is supper, breakfast, brunch or lunch. Not only tasty, it provides a great source Vitamin D both from the eggs and the smoked salmon.

 

 

Serves 2

 

Ingredients

 

4 fresh eggs, preferably free range

 

75g smoked salmon trimmings, chopped

 

2 tbs creme fraiche

 

1 knob of butter

 

2 wholemeal bagels toasted and buttered

 

1 tsp chopped fresh chives for garnish, (optional)

 

freshly ground black pepper

 

 

Process

 

Put a small pan on a medium heat on hob.

 

Add knob of butter and melt.

 

Beat eggs lightly in a bowl, season with ground black pepper and add to pan with melted butter. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon.

 

As the egg begins to solidify (this should take 2-3 minutes) add the creme fraiche and mix through, followed by the chopped salmon trimmings.

 

 

Keep stirring and when the mixture becomes a ‘soft and creamy mass’, remove from heat and serve on toasted wholemeal bagels.  Garnish with freshly chopped chives if desired.  Enjoy!

Fresh Fruit Salad

  • Origin: High-Fiber

Fresh Fruit Salad

In my mind, no fresh fruit salad is complete without sliced oranges freshly cut from their skins.  They add vibrancy and juiciness for the other fruits to marinade in. Follow my guide to preparing the oranges and then add your own favourite fruits.
